55. We can't just sit back and hope for the best
I am certainly no mathematician or statistician so cannot offer a comment one way or the other as to the merits of TIA's analysis. I do strongly disagree with c-macdonald's comment about hoping for the truth, however. We cannot just sit back and watch, and hope that the truth will come out, and in the meantime work on changing the political debate. Time is of the essence here! If the truth doesn't come out NOW, the Dems will never win again. Yes, the Dems. definitely need to work on framing the issues better, etc. But, remember, the repugs OWN the voting machines. If they get away with stealing this election, they're certainly not going to insist on verifiable paper trails for the voting machines, ever. Remember, it was only the few repug leaders in Congress that prevented the verifiable paper trail bills from being voted on. If their plan works this time, nothing's going to stop them in the future. Being a bunch of Pollyannas isn't going to help us do anything, especially to take our country back. The Ukrainians seem to be more realistic about their situation. Perhaps we passive Pollyannas could learn something from them.
